Cornwall at War

The SD&G Highlanders, 1st Battalion return home, December 29, 1945 before family and friends at the old Cornwall train station.

The men are seen running for their last parade where Lt. Col. Dick, 2nd Bn (right) hands over the colours of the 59th Bn to Lt. Col. Gemmell, Officer Commanding the 1st Bn.

The unit could proudly claim to have never failed to take an objective, never losing a yard of ground, and never losing a man – taken prisoner – in an offensive action.

The exhibit on Cornwall at War, which chronicles the SD&G Highlanders, will be closing at the end of November.
